SOFT safety reports focus on near misses, incidents and accidents that have occurred within a given period.
We have decided to extend this document to also comment on other trends in Rope Access. A few of our members have been asking for more statistics covering other areas in the trade.
These reports are intended to be publicly available and contributing to learning, with the aim of keeping individual operators as safe as possible in their daily work. However, the information contained in our safety reports will also be useful for other HSE personnel. Also, we will try to describe trends to better understand underlying causes.
The material is taken from incidents reported in CertaSoft and other reports received during the year.
